so a week ago i got my blood work done and my tsh was 8.5 ( 0.34-4.6)
t4 - 0.86 (0.61-1.12)
feritin 35 (24-336)
b12 165 (182-803) . these was all checked when i was on levo generic 50mcg and now i have started taking synthroid 88mcg.
my doctor didnt bother to check my ft3 and tt3 so after a week of built up frustration i got him to give me orders for it and the results were
ft3- 3.3 (2.3-5.0) ( this was after a week after started my synthroid 88mcg)
almost 2 months from this result my t3 was 2.8 ( 2.3-4.2). after reading about so many people not doing good on t4 only i requested my doctor to prescribe my t3 and he prescribed me 12.5 mcg a day now which ill be starting from tomorrow. i dont know what answer im looking for here but do i really require t3? i have been feeling ridiculous for a LONG LONG time and I just want to get rid of it which is clearly not happening and t3 is my last remaining hope for it. i see my t3 has increased just in a week after taking synthroid 88mcg so I dont know whether i should be taking t3 or not. is it detrimental to try taking it? also do i take it together with t4 in the morning?
